Thanks again for the updates! Great to see so much progress.
This looks like an operational nightmare. Trains will have to share tracks in three (!) different places. Also, they could have...
But notice how Targets (and all department stores) usually locate in malls, while major malls rarely contain grocery stores? There's different dynamics. The agglomeration effect doesn't really exist...
That's fair. Even with the condos already down there, there area isn't very vibrant. I could see the store ending up with 11am-7pm, Mon-Sat type hours.
Is it just me, or isn't this location kinda crappy for a Target? There's no other destination retail anywhere close.
No need for a new thread.
You can't turn left from Scarlett onto Dundas.
Come on, BMO. That obviously has nothing to do with the Union Station Second Platform project. Please at least try to post things in an appropriate thread.
I've moved that post and replies moved...
That's from the Transit Investment Advisory Panel. They are not part of Metrolinx and are not affiliated with Metrolinx.
I believe Steve Munro reported that the financial case for the subway extension assumed exactly this (everyone will be paying a second fare).
Thankfully it does look like people are working to...
It's about a 230m walk from the front doors of Sick Kids to the nearest surface stop at Bay and Gerrard.
I think the meaning of this is clear. If you support keeping the Victoria St stop on Queen...
Gormley (Stouffville Rd) is scheduled for 2015.
In Durham, only the maintenance facility is funded. The Bowmanville extension is unfunded.
Google says it's 170m to the stop on the Esplanade, and 110m to King once that stop is back in place. In total only 280m! I can't see what the issue is here!
"It's well used" isn't a very good...
The TTC is looking to implement a standard 300-400m stop spacing across the network,including getting rid of Sunday stops.
For example, on Queen between Spadina and Church, this would mean removal...
Thanks for the updates! The progress makes me jealous! :)
Believe it or not we don't have to justify ourselves to you.
For sure. Just because someone complains doesn't mean they're wrong.
The old Metro logo is six question marks.
I think NIMBY has come to just mean "local complainers".
Or, more like, "not in my backyard, without ensuring the greatest possible benefit to me personally".
Why does something that represent the oldest part of the city only represent the "old city"? Don't our heritage and our roots count for something?
Even downtown routes aren't profitable according to the TTC's accounting.
Our starting point is determined by the subsidy provided by the city. As we saw, the subsidy got cut, so the line...
"Underperforming" simply depends on where you draw the line. If your criteria is profitability, every single route in the city would be cut. But of your criteria was the same as, say, Burlington, all...
According to the Atlanta Streetcar website, the projected ridership for their new streetcar is 2,600 passengers a day. This is about the same as the ridership on the 126 Christie bus. In comparison,...
The city's route might be preferred, sure. But is it preferred some much that it's worth $2 billion dollars extra? Seeing that almost all trip generation is at STC, I would argue that it's not worth...
